    Description

    Hal Foster Tarzan #281 Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-26-36 (United Feature Service, 1936). "The Raiders" was an episode from fairly early in the famed "Tarzan in the City of Gold" story arc. The story, based on the original Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, ran for over a year, from May of 1936 until October of 1937. It was the last story arc by Hal Foster before he moved on to create Prince Valiant. Burne Hogarth would step in to finish the story in May of 1937. This Foster example was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 19" x 26.5". The board is toned, with handling wear on the edges, and minor corner chipping. The logo is a printed paste-up. The white paint on the "Next Week" banner is chipped off. There rips in both the top and bottom margins that have been repaired with tape from the reverse side. In Good condition.
